I am going to give us a list of the signs in which we can use to identify a fake love when we see one. It is actually the opposite of everything in 1 Corinthians 13.
1. Patient: A fake love doesn’t have time to overlook your excesses, or stay long for you to change or adjust your ways.
2. kindness is not in their dictionary: you know the Bible says out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. Well in their case it is the opposite; the feeling isn’t genuine or real so everything they do for you will be harsh and rash instead of being kind, sweet, caring and loving.
3. Envious: Everything you accomplish in your goal list only make them furious and more hateful towards you, as if you are the cause of their own downfall or setback. True love isn’t envious because everything is for two and not for one.
4. Boastful: it talks about everything that he/she has achieved all the time, giving you no room for your own inputs or achievements. Making every conversation about themselves, themselves and themselves. It’s like they are in a me myself and I relationship and you are the third party that is only good for listening and not commenting.
5. Pride: they are too proud to ask for help, to say sorry for their wrong doing, they are to proud to associate with you in public. They feel like they are better than you and that they are doing you a favor by being in a relationship with you.
6. It Dishonors: there is no respect for you inside the house or outside the house. There is no respect towards your own part in the relationship, be it the provider or caretaker. They only care about themselves.
8. Easily angered: Everything provokes them, it irritates them, every little mistake is not meant to happen, you aren’t perfect to them and so they have to correct you for every mistake. Be it physically, emotionally, physiologically and mentally. In their love language, correction is anger.
9. It has records of all your wrongs: They keeps tab of every fight, every word you use that they feel is insulting, every face you make, every mood that looks like an insult. Everything you do is wrong to them and so they keep records of it and use it against you in the future. Always bringing up the past in the future.
11. Lies and abuse: they were never going into the relationship for the long run, so from the on set everything they feed you with are lies, deceit, and fake stories. They use you as their stress reliever, physically or vocally. After using, destroying, degrading, and killing your sel-esteem. You were just there to help them kill time and boredom.
The Bible says that God is love and love is God.
God so loved us that he gave us the love signs to prove to us that he truly loves us. So if someone says they love you then they should be willing to showcase the true love signs in the Bible.
